Than, who has been paralyzed by Ares and Limos for the past 8 months comes out of his paralysis faster than they were expecting and heads straight for Regan. She's staying at the Aegis headquarters and having her own problems with a vampire that wants her dead. Than comes in just in time and takes her to his keep, so he can figure out what to do with her. Than is so full of anger, rightfully so, and the hurt and pain and all the lies that he feels from Regan don't just magically go away. They struggle through much of the first half of the book to feel their way with each other. Than has a way with cutting words right to Regan's heart and that's what ultimately had me starting to sympathize with her. Regan didn't have the best childhood and the only place she ever felt wanted was with the Aegis. While I still don't agree with what she did to Than, I started to understand it better as more details about her life came out and I slowly became a fan of hers.
Than and his siblings have a whole lot of problems going on around them, in addition to Than worrying about how to keep his unborn son safe. Pestilence is still growing stronger and stronger, he's deceiving people left and right, killing without thought and he wants to kill Than's son, badly. Gone is any trace of Reseph and it becomes very clear that Than's original plan to try and find a way to save Reseph just isn't going to happen. They need to kill Pestilence and put a stop to all the death and destruction he's bringing down on the world. He attacks the Aegi and even Underground General. It shouldn't be shocking at this point, but the killings that he brings down on those that are close to Ares, Limos and Than are heartless. He's hitting them close home and with the power he has now, stopping him is proving to be next to impossible for the Horsemen.
Than and Regan's relationship plays a huge role in the book, and their build up from basically hatred and shame on Regan's part to acceptance, forgiveness and finally love took time and didn't come easy. I went from cheering Than every time he landed a well placed verbal hit against Regan, to cringing and feeling bad for her once her story started coming out. I really liked Than's progression. He has always dreamed about having a family, but with the curse of what he thought was his seal, he never thought it would be possible. While I'd never say he turned into a big softy around Regan once he found out she was pregnant, he certainly fell in love with his son early on. For this couple, it was the little things that had each of them starting to see the other person through new eyes. A book from Regan to Than, Than letting some of her co-workers come to his keep so she'd have some familiar faces around her. It was little things like that that led them to find some common ground. And of course, the sex between them - hot. With Regan being 8 ½ months pregnant, it couldn't get too crazy, but Than and Regan were both very inexperienced and they were able to use that common ground as well to become more comfortable around each other, and Than had many, many years of celibacy to make up for!
What I wasn't expecting at all was the storyline for Pestilence. The one question I've always had throughout the three books was how in the world was Reseph going to be able to come back? His set up occurs at the end and it was surprising to me that happened, but Ione has a way of building up the next book so well that I finished Than and Regan's story and I immediately wanted to find out what's going to happen to Reseph.
I loved this book. It's fast paced, the action hits not only the Horsemen, but the demons at UG. My biggest concern going in was Regan, but I was satisfied with her and Than's story. It's emotional, and they really are the perfect match for each other. I was so happy for Than, finding happiness and a family that he'd always dreamed of. Of course, nothing is easy in these books, and he makes a sacrifice at the end that will impact their future, but it's nothing that they won't be able to handle together. I loved everything about this story and I'm SO anxious to find out what's going to happen with Reseph.
Sadly, he gets really screwed over and is used as a means to an ends in the previous book in the series but this book is all about making his HEA possible.
Ione does an amazing job in this book with the heroine. Regan did something pretty awful in rhe previous book and gasp plans on giving her baby away.
Through this love story, we see Regan fully and love her as Thanatos does. I love Thantos all along but his own blinders come off as well to his own behaviors.
This book has a well earned happily ever after with two badass warriors and provides a great adventure in the overall plot of the series.
Quibbles: It can't stand alone. You really need to read the other books in the series to really enjoy it. And Thanatos should have been way more angry at his sibs.
